Hi! I am doing my second wedding cakes this fall, and am about to test new cake recipes (using cake mixes). Last time, I didn't really pay attention to what cake mix I used, but this time I am curious to know opinions from seasoned cake bakers about which is the best brand of cake mix.

Most of my recipes call for instant pudding, so I usually just don't use Pillsbury because it confuses me that they already have pudding in the mix, and I'm afraid it would be too wet with two pudding mixes! But I like that brand.

Favorites?? I need a white cake, chocolate cake and spice cake.

If you use the search function and type in cake mixes it should be up more than a few threads on this topic.

I use to use the Pillsbury Cake Mix and I do the WASC recipe for all of my cakes. But I found that was not as firm as I would like the cake to be. I have switched to Betty Crocker. It makes a firmer cake for me. Hope this helps a little.

I use Duncan Hines and use the WASC recipe for both my white and chocolate cakes. I love the texture of the cakes.

I recently used CK premium chocolate cake mix from GSA. My family loved it. I will use it again and am going to try their white mix for a birthday cake.
